How does the Ultherapy work ? The Ulthera system utilises state of the art ultrasound technology to visualise the targeted tissue and precisely deliver energy at the desired depth. Energy is delivered to the targeted area, including the SMAS and playtysm a, heating tissue to the optimal temperature for new collagenesis (~65C). The result isliftingand toning of the skin and deeper soft tissues,without causing collateral effects to surrounding tissues.
Other skin tightening techniques such as lasers and radio frequency (RF) devices, heat the tissues through the skin surface, so if not used properly may cause adverse effects like hyper pigmentation, commonly seen in darker skin patients. The Ulthera system micro- focuses ultrasound energy below the ski surface, leaving the epidermis unaffected.. This makes Ultherapy ideal for patients of all skin type.
Ultherapy can also be used for lifting, tightening and toning the neck, décolleté, upper arms and inner thighs.
Recon touring of the jawline and lifting of the eyebrow areas are most ideal forUltherapy. Itcanalso becombinedwithother treatmentslikeBotox, fillers and fine threads.
Compared to other technologies, Ultherapy is an excellent device to lift and tighten sagging skin.
